so they other day I was at the nail salon getting a pedicure. they had the july 2010 edition of cosmo, so I read it to pass the time. there was a section featuring a few recipes from Cat Cora’s newish cookbook. One was a veggie lavash pizza, the other was greek nachos. both sounded delicious! I should’ve snagged the mag cause naturally I forgot the specifics in regards to the recipes. A quick search for lavash pizza and Cat Cora, didn’t turn up much, she obviously doesn’t have her cookbook recipes on the internet for free. I did find someone though who had the cookbook and made the pizza and blogged about it. Great Food Fun Places. they didn’t post the exact recipe, but their variation of it. I also remembered seeing Cara over at Cara’s Cravings post a few times about lavash pizza. she also has some great recipes/ideas for lavash pizza. I also found a Bobby Flay recipe and a Rachael Ray recipe, since I was over at food network looking for Cat Cora. I liked that Cat Cora and Bobby Flay used hummus as a “sauce” on their pizzas.
so anyways here is what I did for my lavash pizza:
1 summer squash
2 pieces of lavash
1 leek (bottom part)
garlic lovers hummus
small amount of shredded mozzarella and crumbled blue cheese
preheat oven to 400 degrees
spray baking sheet with olive oil misto
place two pieces of lavash on baking sheet,
and spray each side lightly with olive oil misto.
bake for about 3 minutes per side, just until nice a slightly golden.
meanwhile sautee diced summer squash with a little olive oil until softened, about 8 minutes. also added in some chopped leeks half way through.
top lavash with a thin layer of hummus, I used garlic lovers.
then scatter the summer squash on top.
I had roasted 2 beets a couple of days ago, (wash beets, wrap each one in tin foil, bake at 425 for 1 hour, let cool, peel skin, chop or put in fridge whole still in foil unpeeled until ready to use), took them out of the fridge and out of their foil and diced. added to the top of the lavash.
sprinkled with a little mozzarella cheese for mine,
and a little mozzarella and blue cheese for Chris’
put back in the over for about 5 minutes.
these came out great! nice and crispy. easy to cut each lavash in fourths. easy to hold and eat with hands. so many endless possibilities for ideas and toppings! super super quick and easy!
